Christians see Holy Week as the culmination of Jesus' earthly life. Year 3 have been learning about the various events of Holy Week during their recent Salvation topic, including Jesus' death and resurrection. They have learned how Christians remember and celebrate Jesus' last week, including looking at the different crosses used in churches during that time, such as Palm crosses, Friday crosses and Easter Sunday crosses.
As a reflection on this Salvation topic, the children produced their own Christian crosses using a tape resist technique and a medium of their choice, such as chalks or watercolours. The children understand that their empty cross reminds Christians of the resurrection of Jesus Christ; a concept at the very heart of the Christian faith.
